We’ll soon combine all three–and, eventually, use them to create whole new multi-faceted immersive worlds that will make today’s entertainment look like radio dramas. Read More
Earlier this month, the first Pokémon Go malware was spotted in the wild, but the app was not much of a threat to users as it never made it into the official Google Play store for download.

Moovit wants to help you catch ’em all and catch the bus at the same time. It’s integrated with Pokemon Go to make it faster to catch a Grimer.

This will… Read More
